There’s always something happening at Glen Mar.

Family Christmas Project for Worship

Want something creative to do with your family? Have creative writing skills? Like coming up with fun stories? Have a fun story to share about Christmas? We want to hear from you! The worship team will be collecting Christmas stories and poems about Christmas, Christmas morning, and/or the joy and meaning of Christmas for our December 26th services. Please submit your stories and/or poems now through December 17th.

Glen Mar is supporting our brothers and sisters at Ames Memorial Church in collecting winter coats for those in need. Coats should be new, or clean and in good shape. A collection box will be available at Glen Mar through December 20, 2021. If you have any questions, please contact Lynne Phillips. [Read More]

130 Boxes Collected and Packed for Operation Christmas Child

On Nov. 14, middle school youth packed 65-70 boxes using donated gifts, school supplies, and fun items made at the Day of Service and during Local Mission Week. We delivered an additional 60-65 boxes filled by Glen Mar families to the Operation Christmas Child drop off. The boxes will be sent to churches around the world who will give them to children living in poverty as a way to connect with families in the community and share the Gospel. (More to come next week.)

Light of the World Sermon Series

Our Advent sermon series, The Light of the World, is inspired by the book with the same title by Amy-Jill Levine. This series looks at the coming of Christ from the lens of different perspectives such as Joseph, Mary, shepherds, angels, Caesar Augustus, Herod, Elizabeth, and more. We will also look at the testimonies to the Light of the World in the Old Testament. [Read More]
